Upcoming School For Me:


Rob
 Share

Recommended Posts

I'm gonna be attending a factory training school at Eaton in Raleigh, NC from 7/18-7/23. If any of you guys want to swap lies in person give me a call sometime between now and then.

My number is: 309-219-2070 and it's always on, (much to my chagrin sometimes).

Don't know if I'll be driving the "trusty, yet crusty" old Dodge, or "double nuts" but I'll be there.

I'll have to see if they'd be pissed if I flunked.

I didn't know they could teach an old dawg new tricks. Or maybe your going only for the perks and hore de vores. If i'm to attend anymore school it would probably be driver safety school since they no longer spend for me to go to school through work related. Only kidding......I do get a badgering flight instructor to go up in the air with me sometimes as I did a few weeks ago when doing my Bi-Annual Flight Review.

Two years ago during a BFR with the same guy ( i'm surprised he wanted to go up with me again ) he wanted to do emergency engine out procedures and he thought I was not performing to his likings. So I told him I could do this all day. He pulled the throttle on the downwind abeam the numbers and told me to see if I could get to the airport and land. To make a long story short, I slipped the plane sideways cause I was too high, got it slipped into Final Approach and landed too fast but, made another one of my fabulous landings. The instructor fell silent for a minute and then with his Japanese lingo was telling me I cannot do it that way and go around again. He was so nervious and messed up about it he was shakeing because of my slipping to landing near the ground. So that was when I told him I could do this all day cause I love it, and want more of it. We went around again for the last time and was uneventfull. As he was signing my Pilot Log Book that was when I saw him with the shakes. I can laugh about it now. :thumb:

I'm going to class for large UPS, Uniterruptable Power Supplies for buildings. We have more and more of them being installed on radar sites. They have regular working hours classes so should be able to get together.

Where are you going to be in Raleigh? Are you still going to Macungie? Only a week away!

Macungie is not looking good for me at this point. We are commisioning this new radar facility on the 24th and there are still some minor problems. The jury is still out and I want to make it due to it being the "Mack" year.

I don't know the area at all. I was going to look you up however as I'll be there the full week.

We, (Momma, daughter, and myself) will be departing central Illinois at about midnight on the 17th-18th and attempting to drive straight through to Raleigh. My class starts at 7:30am on Monday morning. We will be staying at the Comfort Suites in Raleigh which is very close to the school. I'll have my cell phone on the entire time and there should be time available to visit and run around if Momma's pesky little bladder problem doesn't rear it's ugly head. Hopefully daughter Nikki will have her stomach settled by then also as she has twice this past week blown groceries in the car. Rob 309-219-2070

Getting ready to head out but man how much shit does a 300 pound woman need to take with her for a week????? Geez, think I may have to ride in the trunk cause she wants to take three suitcases, three large boxes, seven, (yes seven) pairs of shoes, and three gallons of non homogenized milk in the cooler!! There is only so much room in a Dodge Aries and it's gonna be tight!!

Momma has her stash of back up emergency "bladder bags", and I a couple of spare colostomy sacks so we don't need to stop for cleaning. Daughter Nikki has her emergency spill kit, (just in case). I didn't get no "Superdogs" for the past couple of days but little does the family know about my cheesy taco salad with hot picante sauce I had for lunch. My belly is just starting to warm up and I'm ready to take the "smells of home" with us. Should be an interesting trip.

Planning to depart around 6:30pm instead of midnight. By Mapquest, the trip is about 870 miles. As long as my ears hold out from the upcoming rackett, and my shoulder from the resounding impact cause my hearing always decays when Momma starts to bitchin, we'll keep moving.

We're loading up. Boy there just ain't a lot of room in the car. We is gonna need to have the windows all the way down due to no air conditioning except highway airflow. Not even any room for pillows but I'll rest my head on Momma's belly rolls when daughter is driving.

Check in later tonight.

Arrived in Raleigh about 1/2 hour ago. It's hot but not near as steamy as the car ride over. I'm in room 204 of the Comfort Suites at 4400 Capitol BLVD. The number is 919-876-2211.

Seems like I get to live a little "higher on the hog" than I'm accustomed to for the next five days. Hell, I don't even have to wade in the creek to take a bath here.

Just be sure that if you go swimming in the pool that you do it BEFORE eating chili dogs, don't want to get any cramps, and the other motel patrons might not like a Rob powered bubble bath. Have a good time out there.

Walked out the door towards the pool and several young girls started to screaming and dispersed like cockroaches when you turn on the lights!! Then their mothers started yelling obscenities at me from across the courtyard. Some of the things mother's will say in front of their daughter's is beyond me. Such a shame to "poison" the minds of our youth with such garbage, I'll tell you. The hotel manager then appeared and asked me to "put" a bathing suit on if I was going to use the public pool as was their policy, or I would have to leave the hotel. "Geez", I say. people are so unreasonable sometimes.

My first assumption was they didn't t appreciate the expanse of a man of my size before them; but maybe it was the double sized, soft sided burrito visciously attacking my throat through my mouth that offended them, lord only knows. I didn't even get to dispense with my excellent poolside manners as the courtyard emptied too quickly.

Spoke with a couple of board members this afternoon and laying out plans for a small "get together". I was able to squeeze in a 1/2 case of each Phillips, "Milk of Magnesia", and "Pepto-Bismal", so we should be covered for any event. I never touch the stuff myself but I'm accustomed to Momma's burnt on the edges, raw in the middle cooking style. With only two opposing teeth, I have to go slow or cut stuff into small enough chunks it will slurp up through a straw to eat.

Man I'll tell you, 890 miles in a 1986 Dodge Aries wagon with no a/c, plywood and carpet to replace rusted floorboards, with loud, and leaking exhaust, chocked full of necessities, (Fritos brand corn chips, Salsa, hot dogs, chilli, Tabasco sauce, etc). when 90+ degrees is rough on a fat man. I wolfed down three hotcakes and sausage breakfasts from McRonalds this morning and the girls paid for it the next couple of hours down the hiway.

I start class tomorrow morning at 7:30am. Should be interesting at the least. Maybe they'll teach me how to hook batteries up correctly.

Right now I think I'll eat four Rolaids, and go to bed.

If you decide to go to the pool again today take a speedo and see if you get a better reaction. FYI-Don't take any Baby Ruth's with you, that would be almost the same as yelling "FIRE" in a packed movie theater.

Actually did something along those lines once and the reaction was less than positive. I let the air out of concealed balloon I'd hidden in my shorts underwater in clear view of a few that were watching me and let out a giant "Ahhhhhh". Most that weren't laughing, left saying I was gross.

I remember the "Baby Ruth" bar in the swimming pool routine well. Good movie.

1st day down and both eventful, and entertaining. Nice people at this training facility. We are working with 480 volt UPS units. These suckers have 40 12VDC gell cell batteries internally. Just imagine what they would cost to replace!!

2nd day down and I'm actually learning something for sure; stay soaking up the air conditionning inside cause it's hotter than the fires of hell here. Even my fat rolls was sweating. Momma looked like she just got out of the pool with her clothes on! And this was just walking across the parking lot.
